John Travolta

Claims 2nd Masseur

Is ALSO Lying

EXCLUSIVE

0508_john_travolta_tmz
John Travolta's lawyer is lashing out at the second "anonymous" male masseur who's accused the actor of sexual harassment -- calling the 2nd claim "just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one."

Travolta's powerhouse attorney, Marty Singer, just released a statement in response to a report that a second accuser filed legal docs claiming Travolta grabbed his genitals and masturbated during a massage session on January 28th at an unidentified Atlanta spa resort.

Singer calls the new allegations "absurd and fictional" ... and says they're "just as fabricated" as the claims made by John Doe #1 in the initial lawsuit filed May 4th.

Singer also blasts the lawyer who's representing both accusers -- claiming the attorney obviously read media reports which poked holes in accuser #1's story ... and then made adjustments when asserting claims on behalf of the 2nd alleged victim.

We've put in multiple calls to the lawyer who filed the claims -- but he has yet to return our calls.


Marty Singer's Official Statement:

"This second 'anonymous' claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one. 

The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client, who does not want to disclose his name although he is required to do so, was notified that his first client’s claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in LA when anonymous “Doe #1” claims he interacted with John Travolta.
 
That fact is easily provable since John Travolta was on the east coast working on a movie on the date that anonymous “Doe #1” claims he interacted with our client.  After we were able to establish that anonymous “Doe #1’s” claims were totally absurd, the same attorney has now filed a claim on behalf of another plaintiff, whom he identified as “Doe #2.”  Significantly, although the same attorney made the fabricated claim for Doe #1, there was never any claim made by anonymous Doe #2 before he filed his specious lawsuit.
 
Before the attorney for the two anonymous plaintiffs filed the claim on behalf of the second person who refuses to disclose his identity although required to do so, it is obvious that he checked media reports that my client was in Atlanta working on a movie.  
 
However, the claim by Doe #2 is just as fabricated as the claim by Doe #1.  Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims."

I agree with Marvin, more will start to come forward. Kelly, I'm sorry. John, if true, fight the urges. Much like men who are married fight the urges of being with other women. It's not natural. It's pretty nasty.

This statement from Singer isn't exactly the "bombshell" Harvey was describing on TMZ live. Of course, Travolta's lawyer is going to hit back with threats and claims of lies. That's what lawyers do. Don't know enough about the claims of masseur #2, but I think there's truth in the claims of masseur #1.

I like John, just like most of America...BUT it is a shame that these GAY rumors have been with this guy for some time now....AND that is a shame. As a red blooded American boy, if I or most of us guys, had the fame and money that he has had ALL these years - WE would have been in at least ONE torrid love affair with a WOMAN! And, we would have been caught from it too....That being said, the fact that it never has happened to him....means only one thing: HE is as QUEER as a 3 dollar bill....too bad, it is really a disgrace. love, america.

I can understand being an anonymous accuser if you're dealing with the mob or something, but otherwise I think it just makes a person appear less credible.

Wow, more gay rumours for John. If it's true, he should do the decent thing and divorce Kelly, so she can find love again. I feel sorry for her, not to mention what diseases he may give her.

i've assumed JT was on the down low - but these guys are lying thru their teeth - maybe they are friends with john's "special" friend and they are using that story trying to cash in
